to be supportive of it. i don't think you can find anybody in america who worked harder for his re-election or support of this bill or went out of the way to explain the bill more than i did. there's no politics there. i didn't say anything until he talked. i'm trying to be supportive. i do think we have to get the website up and we have to work. is it confined to the website? that's the biggest problem because if the website is working and everybody can see what their options are, then in most states, most people will have a good option, which will be the same or less costly than the one they had before that will cover the same or more conditions. so, i think it will be all right. but, know there was no politics involved. >> when asked if hillary clinton will run for president because you know that is the question that bill clinton continues to get, his answer, three words, i don't know. but he did say, he likes joe biden and if biden is the democratic nominee, he would be glad to help him. >>> question, do you watch the hit tv show, "scandal" with the lovely, gorgeous kerry washington? it
